How Can I Ensure Security:
The most important defense in preventing the theft or unwanted viewing of personal information is to be sure you are using a security-enabled browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 2.1 or greater) or Netscape Navigator (version 2.0 or greater). These browsers offer you the ability to receive an alert or pop-up when any of the following situations are about to occur:
- You are changing between secured and unsecured transmission modes.
- You are receiving suspicious or invalid site identification for the site to which you are trying to transmit data.
- You are about to send data over an unsecured or open connection.
Under your browser's security preference settings, be sure the above features (and any other security measures) are checked.
If in doubt, you can confirm whether your connection is secure by looking for these security measure identifiers on your browser:
- A "closed lock" icon in the bottom right corner of your screen (if using Microsoft Internet Explorer) or an "unbroken key" icon in the lower left corner (if using Netscape Navigator)
- A security symbol to indicate you're operating in a mode that supports secure transmissions
- The beginning letters of the URL identifying the site address will change from "http:" to "https:" if you're accessing a secure server.

What is Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)?
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is an Internet protocol that safeguards electronic communications between two or more computers. For a communication or transaction that is transmitted over an “end to end” SSL connection, the computer initiating the transmission will open an SSL connection. This means that when Computer A sends a request to Computer B to transmit information, Computer A will include a digital certificate—a complex authentication tool that is basically a third-party issued certification that Computer A is a trustworthy source. Computer B then accepts the transmission and, in the event that Computer B has information to return to computer A, the SSL connection may remain open until the transaction between the two computers is complete.
Server-side SSL can also be used in the event that Computer A doesn’t have the necessary digital certificate or the ability to open an SSL connection to submit a communication to Computer B. However, Computer B may have some other means of authenticating the trustworthiness of Computer A or other computers that are submitting communication requests. Any transmissions sent to other computers by computer B will be transmitted via an SSL connection to those computers. In this case, the SSL connection is terminated once Computer B has completed its transmission.
When transmissions are sent over an SSL connection, they cannot be intercepted, viewed or modified by other parties on the Internet. As such, customer payment information is transmitted securely.
How secure is submitting transactions over the Internet?
Submitting transactions over the Internet can be as secure as providing credit card or check payments in person. All parties involved with processing any payment transaction—including customers, merchants, merchant service providers or businesses that handle customer payment information, and payment gateways—should be vigilant about protecting customer payment information.
For merchants and merchant service providers that may handle customer payment information, there are many payments industry security initiatives and programs in place that are designed to safeguard customer payment and other sensitive information—programs with which in many cases they are required to prove compliance. As you seek merchant service providers to work with, be sure to find out about their efforts to meet industry standard security requirements and practices. A professional organization will do everything in their capacity to meet and maintain the highest levels of Internet security—which is why Authorize.Net is compliant with maintaining the highest industry security standards. Authorize.Net is committed to safeguarding customer information and combating fraud. We have implemented industry leading security initiatives, and our merchants are protected by the strongest encryption methods and security protocols available.
